    The left side fuel step is an excellent add. My current gear uses long steps on both sides offset forward to serve as fuel steps on both sides. I...

    PS- if you find a used GDL39? No ADHRS, unless it's specifically a GDL39-3D. The current models in the -50 series all have ADHRS.

    G3x provides wind status. I guess I should put some tape over that display to level the playing field. Why confuse things with accurate information!
